The dream of absolutely every girl, regardlessfrom her age, lifestyle or profession, is an ideal, smooth and radiant skin. Even those who are not too concerned about their appearance and who do not think about make-up and style sooner or later begin to worry about how their face looks. That is why it is very important to know how to provide your skin with competent care. Today we will talk about how to make a good face scrub at home, taking into account the features, characteristics and type of skin.
Features of facial scrub
What is a scrub and what is it for?usually used? Scrub is a remedy intended for soft exfoliation of the skin, elimination of dead, old cells that prevent skin renewal. Of course, in the washing process, we also cleanse the skin of small scales, but this care is not enough. In addition, in the rhythm of modern life, when the environment is not very clean, care of the skin becomes even more important. Many girls use a scrub for complex care, but do not know how to properly use them, and as a result cause even greater harm to the skin. Of particular importance is the type of skin in the first place. For example, if you have it dry, then in such cleaning it needs less than fatty, which requires cleaning by such means two or three times a week. Many, in spite of this feature, "torment" their face with a scrub every day. The composition of any scrub includes abrasive particles in combination with a soft base. This mixture in the complex has a mild exfoliating effect. The abrasive in the scrub composition can be both natural and synthetic. In the first case, all kinds of fruit bones are used, for example, olives or peaches, as well as sugar and even coconut chips. What is the difference between scrub and peeling? Using a scrub, you can get rid of even the oldest cells, while peeling is a softer product that can be used daily. Speaking in general, peeling affects the skin due to its chemical composition, but scrub - due to the mechanical effect. Pay attention to the label of the product, buying it in the store: if the product contains seeds of fruit, then it is a scrub, if citric acid is a peeling. Note that any scrub is a powerful means of affecting the skin, and therefore resorting to its use daily beauticians do not recommend. Otherwise, in the end, you can get overdried and damaged skin, which will grow old faster than it could be. And if the vessels are located close to the surface or you suffer from skin diseases, first, before applying the scrub, first consult with a doctor-cosmetologist. By washing with a scrub, you remove the make-up remnants and excess sebum, as well as dirt, while the emollient base protects your skin from inflammation and damage. This achieves a complex effect. After you clean the skin with a scrub, the metabolic processes in it are restored, blood circulation is normalized, as a result of which the epidermis is better supplied with oxygen and nutrients, becomes soft and takes on a fresh appearance. Of course, today the cosmetics industry allows you to choose among a huge variety of scrubs and peelings, but it is better to choose in favor of naturalness - prepare such a cosmetic at home. This method will be useful not only to those of you who seek to save, but also to those who suffer from allergies and are afraid of reaction to unknown cosmetic ingredients. However, before considering the scrubs recipes, let's reveal the features of such home cosmetics.
Home Facial Scrub
Not always home scrubs for the face canreplace professional cosmetics, but despite this, home scrubs can be safely used as an excellent supplement. The easiest way to prepare such a means is to use food products. Firstly, they will not cause harm to the skin; secondly, they will provide it with nutrition and deep hydration. The basis can be honey, cream, fruit gruel, sour cream or cosmetic clay. If the skin is dry, give preference to the basis of a more oily (cream or sour cream), but in the case of oily, problem skin, it is better to choose a fruit slurry. However, if there are inflammations on the skin and they are too noticeable and bright, do not pass for a long time, then apply the scrub better for a while and consult a dermatologist or a beautician for professional help in getting rid of acne, and then use scrubs to care for the skin. In summer, when it's hot outside, you can use scrub more often than in autumn or winter. With dry skin - once a week, with oily - three times. It is recommended to apply scrubs in the evening, better and at all before bed. Why in the evening? After peeling, the skin seems a bit inflamed, red - you probably will not want to go out like that. Yes, and the effect of cosmetics, applied before going to bed, is higher, since the epidermis is saturated with oxygen as much as possible. Carrying out cleansing of sensitive, dry skin, exercise maximum caution. Do not push the scrub into the skin, the movements should be soft and smooth, so as not to damage it. In principle, this rule applies to applying any make-up. Before using the scrub, wash your face with cool clean water, applying a cleanser for your skin. Not bad, if you wash off the decoction of herbs. Remove the hair with a hoop or put it in the tail - on the temples the skin should be slightly stretched. To further open the pores, before applying scrub, soak a soft towel in hot water and gently squeeze to the face, steaming the skin. Rub scrub into the skin better with two fingers, but not with the entire palm. Especially massage gently in the area of the lips and around the eyes, as here it is very easy to stretch and damage. You can make a little extra movements on the cheeks and forehead, and also on the chin - here accumulates twice as many dead cells. Then, when the face is cleaned, the remedy should be left for another ten minutes. During this time, all the ingredients in the composition, will absorb into the skin and moisturize it. Now, wash your face with an infusion of herbs or cool water, gently dry it with a towel. Apply a little lotion or wipe the skin with a small ice cube. And at the conclusion of the procedure, please rejuvenate the skin with a mild nourishing cream.
